I forget all the quaint places the Orange circle has to offer. This week we choose to eat at The Filling Station. We went early enough, 11:00 AM to avoid the lunch crowd and to our surprise, it was pretty busy. There were only 2 tables out in the patio for dining. One thing I love about this place the... More

Been wanting to try this place for some time and finally crossed it off the list today. Not quite up to my expectations after reading so many reviews over the past few months. This place reminds me of the long ago closed Belisles's in Garden Grove. Large portions for the price but simply unexceptional food. What's up with the city... More

We needed to find a place to eat with our dog while the house was tented for termites. The Filling Station was perfect. We were seated in a spot where we could keep our dog securely seated in the corner w/o bothering others around us. The waitress even brought us a bowl of water for our dog. The Filling Station...

We found this place by chance but saw it was busy so went in. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a good choice of American style dishes. Service is very friendly and it had a good atmosphere with fun old fashioned decor. Various styles of seating: outside or at the bar, booths or tables.

Amazing food, fabulous service. Highly recommend. Try the grilled cheese or the edamame salad. The bloody Mary's look good too. :)

Yes, this venue was once a gas station! The food is great, and it's very family-friendly. The patio is actually preferable to the interior, and in colder (talking Southern California here) weather, they have outdoor heaters. Very friendly servers, the food is delicious and the price is right. The only drawback is its size (on the smaller side) and there... More

Delicious! This is one of my favorite breakfast places when I visit southern California. Machaca & eggs with hashbrown is my favorite.

I really enjoyed the down home atmosphere at The Filling Station. Not fancy and very casual and probably better for breakfast and lunch, but I had dinner there and was very satisfied. I will go back there when in Orange.

Great place to eat for a variety of food options; soups, salads, sandwiches and more. They serve breakfast all day. Servings a large, service is good. There is a lovely patio to enjoy the So Cal weather while eating.
